Star Spangled Banner ?!?! ;)

For an upcoming swap where the theme is Red White and Blue,
I wanted to challenge myself not to go with the typical patriotic theme.
So... in keeping with Red White and Blue and
considering my partner and her love of the beach I am going with Nautical instead.
For this project... our challenge was ' Star Spangled Banner '.  I believe I stayed well with in the rules.  I have RWB and stars and stripes and it is a banner.  Tell me you Agree ? ;)
I used the Cricut cart. Life's a Beach to cut for patterns for both the anchor and the crab.
Please don't count his legs !!!
I accidentally cut one off!! so had to on the other side too or he would have looked wonky.  
We cant have a wonky crab.
Anyway... another feltie, these are wired too and the idea was to have the crab hold a little sign but cant settle on one saying yet.  Suggestions welcomed :)

The back ground is canvas that I painted and glittered and pearlized
The pennants are also felt with stitched Stars and Circles cut from my Sizzix.
I hope my partner appreciates my interpretation of the Red White and Blue swap.
If not... Ill happily pay for return shipping.
Ha. Life's a Beach !!! enjoy!!!

now I'm feelin' BEACHY !!!  ( that's a good thing :)
